That time of year
Lions, tigers and bears — oh my!
Not exactly, but soon we will see rabbits, chickens and steers — and llamas, and goats, and swine ...
Yes, folks, the Navarro County Youth Exposition is now upon us, with the first event (the food competition) to take place bright and early Monday morning.
Sausage making and the courts
So, the court backlog story finally ran. I’ve been working on that sucker for three weeks, so I have to admit to some relief that it’s finally out in print.

Learning from Buddy
Every year I write at least one column about my dog, Buddy. Some of you will remember that we adopted Buddy four years ago after he was found starving on the streets of Fort Worth.

In Minnesota March is greeted with snow-covered fields of frozen earth. April snowfall is not uncommon. When we lived there, I once planted our garden on May 1 only to have it freeze. But we are back in Texas where spring comes early.
Sarasota versus Corsicana
Like when we moved down to Corsicana from Denver in 2001, we are already experiencing changes and making comparisons to life here compared to the life we enjoyed in Corsicana.
The weather sets my mood
The first thing I do in the morning is look out the window to see what the weather is like. I didn’t really take the weather report so seriously until I moved out into the country. But now I realize that, if I want to get my mail, I need to go to the post office. And when spring storms come into season, my nerves take a turn for the worse
